    Cheers to 2012. These pictures are so beautiful and remind me that I MUST TRAVEL MORE. If I buy fewer dresses, then I can travel more. Note to self: Resolve to buy fewer dresses.

    A couple of suggestions (feedback if you will): Can you find a way to show your pictures other than the slideshow? I had trouble getting to the next one (error messages) and had to double back and click again. It’s really cumbersome and not easily perused for readers. Also, it would be easier to link to the post. I’d like to be able to read about the adventures you had with the picture to learn more. Not every reader remembers what you did this past year or were reading all the time. Your blog is lovely but is not the most ‘user-friendly’ at times and often reads more like a personal blog. To be user-friendly and engaging to readers, photos and links should be more accessible – not just thrown up there.

    I also thought you were going to do more top ten’s and you only did 2 this year! Oh well, there’s always next year 🙂 Oh, if I eat my peas today – does that still count!?

    You are sooooo too cool for me, Jenna 😉 Love the pictures – especially the one of you, on your birthday, in the kayak. SO BEAUTIFUL.

    You remind me of that little bit within me that wishes I could go on exciting adventures without having to consider my kiddo 😛 But I’m sure grateful for her, and happy you’re having such a wonderful, adventure-filled life! Love you, babe!
